Alicia Keys often struggles while performing her latest hit, ‘Girl on Fire’, so another diva decided to give the song a try. The similarly named Alecia Moore, who is also known as Pink, delivered a Rock-tinged cover of the tune during her appearance at BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge and the result was quite memorable, to say the least!
In addition to renditions of her own hits, ‘Try’ and ‘Blow Me (One Last Kiss)’, Pink rocked out to ‘Girl on Fire’ in a way that she can. How did her voice handle the pressure of the high notes? Listen to her perform at the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge:
‘Girl on Fire’
‘Blow Me (One Last Kiss)’
Both Pink and Keys have very husky voices but the former clearly has a much better understanding of how to use her range. She made the song her own and didn’t push herself beyond the limits of her ability. Yes, Pink’s voice isn’t silky smooth but it works for her brand of singing. Keys could learn a lot from listening to this performance.
